Oakridge BBQ is owned an operated by Mike Trump. Mike claims to have been involved in BBQ since he was ten years old. He's a very accomplished BBQ competitor that was set on creating his own signature rubs for competitions. A self proclaimed perfectionist, Mike's commitment to quality is evident in every Oakridge product. He and his company back their rubs with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Currently, Oakridge BBQ features six different blends targeting everything from pork to wild game. Each rub (aside from Habanero Death Dust) is packaged in attractive six ounce gold pouches. The back of each package is clear making the spice blends visible.
This week, I used Oakridge BBQ's Secret Weapon Pork & Chicken Rub on multiple occasions. Their newest competition style rub, Secret Weapon features a great mix of standard and exotic herbs and spices. The flavors are equal parts sweet and savory with just a hint of spicy heat. A mix of paprika, ancho, chipotle and guajillo chilies give the rub an added smokey / earthy dimension that many pork and chicken rubs don't have.
I used the rub on smoked chicken quarters early in the week. The rub was the perfect blend of flavors for the hickory smoked poultry. The spices created a delicious savory crust on the skin. The salt content was also perfect. All the flavors were right on point. They were strong enough to hold their own when the chicken was sauced, but acted in a complimentary manner rather than dominating the chicken.
In addition to chicken, I also put the rub to work on a spareribs. I slow smoked a rack of spareribs with cherry wood and seasoned it liberally with Secret Weapon. Once again, the rub was just about perfect. I was concerned about the salt content, but the results proved I had nothing to worry about. With the help of Oakridge BBQ and some new techniques, this week's ribs were the best I've ever made.
Inside the Small Batch World of Oakridge BBQ with Mike Trump
Welcome to another episode of the BBQ Beat Podcast… I’m your host… Kevin Sandridge.
You know, more and more in today’s BBQ world, you hear people use words like hand-crafted and small-batch… so much so that it’s hard to tell if we’re all really on the same page when using these terms.
In today’s episode, I’m talking with Mike Trump of Oakridge BBQ, maker of rubs that fit the definition of words like hand-crafted, small-batch, and even batch-aged.
I’ve been a customer of Mike’s without his knowledge now for at least six or seven years. Many of you already love his rubs, brines, seasonings, and injections.
Names like Secret Weapon, Game Changer, Dominator, Black Ops, and Carne Crosta bring a great big smile to your face. They do this because you’ve delighted everyone from yourself, to BBQ judges, to the most important group of all – your friends and family – with the results you get from using these blends.
As I talk with Mike, you’ll hear the origin story of Oakridge BBQ, you’ll become intimately familiar with the painstaking effort he takes to source and use only the finest spices on the planet, and … if you’re like me… you’ll come away with even greater respect for Mike and what he’s doing at Oakridge BBQ.
Now understand, Mike’s hands touch ever rub and seasoning blend that comes out of his shop. If you see a bag of Oakridge BBQ Rub anywhere from California to Maine to England or Australia, it’s come through one central Oakridge BBQ facility in Kearney, Missouri operated and managed by one Mr. Mike Trump.
Because of Mike’s intense focus on his product, he’s had limited opportunity to get out into the world of social media, get out to visit retail shops or some of the nearly 90 cook teams he sponsors here in the US and across the globe.
This interview is one of those “pull back the curtain” experiences that I love to see come together. If you have an interest in how a business like Oakridge BBQ comes together and operates, what it takes in terms of day-in and day-out focus, you’re in for a real treat.

Megaton Rib Rub
Megaton Rib Rub! This is a very unique rub based off a traditional Memphis Rib Rub. We made this Rub based off the need of a rub that would give great flavour amazing colour and a bark that would make a tree sad.

Oakridge BBQ's spice rubs are different.
Oakridge BBQ rubs are the best barbecue rubs money can buy. We control every aspect of their production in-house; from recipe development to sourcing the freshest, highest-potency spices available directly from the farmers who grow them all across the globe.
Oakridge BBQ rubs are then hand-blended, batch aged, and packaged by hand in our own production facility to ensure unsurpassed quality, flavor and freshness. Our competitors use standard commodity grade spices and high percentages of salt, fillers or artificial ingredients in their formulations, often tending to be nothing more than just cheaply flavored salt. In stark contrast, all Oakridge BBQ rubs feature ultra-high spice density ratios with just the right amount of raw unrefined cane sugar and natural sea salt to perfectly balance each rub's flavor profile. Additionally, Oakridge BBQ rubs are completely gluten free and contain absolutely NO MSG, artificial ingredients, preservatives, fillers or anti-caking agents. Our unique, quality-centered approach creates truly artisanal products with bold flavors and perfectly balanced sweet-hot, salty-savory profiles far surpassing any other barbecue rubs or seasoning blends on the market.
This is the real-deal folks; This is Serious Barbecue rub.
Oakridge BBQ Dominator Sweet Rib Rub
Top competition and home cooks alike are constantly searching for an edge; something special to make their food stand out. Dominator Sweet Rib Rub delivers that edge. The sweetness of this rub, developed by the artful blending of raw cane sugar, honey, Vietnamese cinnamon & select exotic spices, is intoxicating and balanced perfectly by deep savory and subtly spicy notes. Dominator excels on pork ribs, and any other cut of pork or chicken. Don't just cook your food, Dominate it!
Oakridge BBQ SPOGOS Rub
The first word that jumped into my mind when I took my first (and subsequent) bites of the SPOGOS brisket was "beefy!. Not just a whisper of the word, but a resounding James Earl Jones rendition of "beefy!"
SPOGOS (pronounced /spaw 'gOs/), is Master Blender Michael Trump's unique interpretation of the classic SPOG (salt, pepper, onion and garlic) rub. Balanced salt and a big black pepper punch, with deep earthy and umami mid-tones from porcini mushrooms and savory herbal subtleties that linger on your palate making you want more and more.
Oakridge BBQ Carne Crosta Steakhouse Rub
Carne Crosta (pronounced car-nay crow-sta), loosely translated as "Beef Crust" in Portuguese, is exactly what this rub will produce. It excels when cooked over high direct heat, especially on well-marbled cuts of beef. The high cooking temperatures are necessary to release oils in the rich Brazilian coffee, which intertwine with the spices and rendered fat, creating the most sumptuously-crusted steak you've ever experienced.
This is our most technical rub and does require correct cooking technique to achieve the best results.
Oakridge BBQ Limited Edition Crucible Ghost Chile Rub
Ghost Chile, also known by the name Bhut Jolokia, is one of the hottest chiles known to man. It has a citrus-like, grapefruit flavor and an intense, searing heat that comes on slow and builds like a runaway freight train. We have harnessed this beast of a chile and built a rub like none other. While not diminishing the chile's notorious heat, we've carefully blended this rub to also showcase its wonderful citrus notes in ways never experienced before, developing a full long-lasting flavor that can walk lock-step with the serious heat of this chile. For the heat-seekers among us, this rub is without peer.
Oakridge BBQ Black Ops Brisket Rub
Oakridge BBQ Black OPS Brisket Rub – Black OPS; a phrase synonymous with secrecy and clandestine operations by our Country's most elite warriors, was the perfect name for this new rub. Cloaked in secrecy, for two years before its release, our team of elite BBQ Professionals put it to the test, winning numerous awards across the country in the process! Black OPS Brisket Rub marks the second entry in our Signature Edition series rubs. Black OPS excels on all cuts of beef, but brisket is its sweet-spot. Incredibly rich & deep flavor profile with a spicy, peppery finish that builds a serious bark.
Oakridge BBQ Venison & Wild Game Rub
This is it folks, this very well may be the best Venison & Wild Game rub on the planet! Savory, sweet, balanced heat, and a totally unique and complex flavor profile with a wonderfully ethereal quality from the use of herbs like ginger, shallots and lemongrass. This All Natural rub pairs wonderfully with wild game meats of the venison family (white-tail deer, fallow deer, mule deer, red deer, elk, red stag, caribou, antelope and moose) as well as bison and even ostrich! Our customers have also found it remarkably good on pork and chicken as well.
Oakridge BBQ Smokey Chile Lime
This rub does it all - fish, seafood, vegetables, beef, pork, chicken, lamb, everything. Use it as a base rub, an accent rub, a finishing dust, or a fry seasoning. Grilled fruit anyone? Just use your imagination and this rub will impress. Perfectly salty and savory with rich smoky undertones, mild sweetness, warm background heat and a bright citrus pop from the crystallized lime juice. Finely ground so the flavor stays put and incorporates quickly. So good, it will become your favorite go-to seasoning for just about everything.
Oakridge BBQ Secret Weapon Pork & Chicken Rub
Oakridge BBQ Secret Weapon Pork & Chicken Rub - Introducing our new Competition Pork and Chicken Rub! We've called it Secret Weapon for a reason, if you're looking for a totally unique flavor profile to elevate your barbecue to a new level, the Secret Weapon is your answer.

This translates into a totally unique flavor profile from the use of twelve specially selected exotic herbs and spices.

Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria Grill Seasoning
Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria Grill Seasoning is our riff on a California classic. We've taken the fabled Santa Maria grilling seasoning and elevated it to new levels never imagined. Rich garlic, pungent pepper and spicy chilies combine with just the right amount of natural fine flake sea salt and other special herbs and spices for the perfect salty/spicy/savory balance. You've never experienced just how good beef can be until you've tried this rub on your favorite steak. Tri-tip, brisket, hanger steaks, skirt steaks, ribeyes, sirloins or fillet mignon. But, don't stop there, even seafood, vegetables, pork & chicken, soups, stews, and just about everything else is greatly enhanced with this rub.
Oakridge BBQ Jah Love Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
Caribbean Jerk is a long-held staple in Island cuisine. The unique flavor profile instantly conveys tropical scenes and a laid-back lifestyle. Our Jah Love Jerk is an authentic Jamaican Jerk seasoning with an assertive heat from our use of the finest Scotch Bonnet chiles. As with all our Signature Edition blends, we have spared no expense in developing the ultimate flavor experience. Our owner and master blender actually traveled to Montego Bay Jamaica in 2015 to experience true Jamaican Jerk first hand. This Jerk recipe was a direct result of the experiences gained during that trip.
Oakridge BBQ Habanero Death Dust
What started as just a side-project, Limited Edition blend, is now a legend in the BBQ rub industry; often hailed as the BEST Spicy-Hot barbecue rub in the World!
As with all Oakridge BBQ products, we have spared no expense in building this Signature Edition blend; sourcing the very best raw cane sugar, sea salt, source-verified spices as well as the highest quality 350,000 Scoville-rated Habanero chiles available. In this Signature Edition blend you'll also find smokey-hot Chipotle chilies, Ancho and New Mexico chilies as well as 13 other herbs and spices. The aroma is earthy and spicy, with the fragrance of habanero chiles immediately present. The flavor profile starts sweet and savory with hints of raw cane sugar, molasses, celery and garlic then in about 3 seconds slams into high gear with the flavor and heat of habanero chilies. This rub is HOT, but it also has a richness and depth of flavor unlike any other ultra-hot spice rub on the market today.

Pellet Smoked Tri-Tip with Oakridge BBQ Rub.
Pellet Smoked Tri-Tip with Oakridge BBQ Rub.
Just couldn't wait any longer to try out the September Newsletter drawing sponsors rubs. Oakridge BBQsent me a couple of samples to try and I am so glad they did! I paired up their “Competition Beef & Pork Rub” with a two pound slab of Tri-Tip and smoked it in my Traeger BBQ100 grill with mesquite pellets.
Here's what I did:
Here is my 2 lb Tri-tip. The first thing I did was to was it and trim the fat cap off. Just don't think it makes a difference to have it on the Tri-Tip and most of the Tri-Tip sold here in California is trimmed by the butcher anyway. It really is a lot of fat … Once I had it washed and trimmed I coated it completely with:
Oakridge BBQ Rub. This was their Competition Beef & Pork Rub in a handy resealable package. 6 oz. of rub is perfect for two 2 lb Tri-Tips. When I first opened the package up I was greeted with a smell of cumin, perhaps onion and garlic that was quite nice. Not being able to resist I had to try a bit for sampling purposes and got hit with a mellow bit of chilies and the sweet tang of sugar and salt. Nice, sweet heat! My favorite!
I placed my Tri-Tip in a Ziploc bag and poured half the rub in to give it a good coating. Back in the refrigerator for two hours, then out to warm up to room temperature. I find this is the best way to smoke meat as I am cooking at low temperatures and don't want to waste good cooking time warming up the meat in the smoker. Now there are those that will argue the scientific merits of this but at Cooking-Outdoors I keep it simple and this is how I do it.
Now I place it into my Traeger BBQ100 for an hour at medium heat. I estimate this to be about 300 degrees F.
After one hour the juices are perkin now! Cooking it this way give me a bit of a crust and I like that. Time to turn down the Traeger BBQ100 to low. Estimate about 225 degrees F. I'm going to cook this for about two hours more, looking for 150 degrees F internal temperature, medium.
Two hours latter I have a beautiful Tri-Tip with a crusty bark on the outside, just the way I like it. Time for it to sit at least 15 minutes.
I really don't need to tell you how great this tasted do I?
The Oakridge BBQ rub was just fantastic, a perfect blend of sweet heat rounded out with a beautiful color that make this Tri-Tip look and taste like a competition cooked piece of beef.
Till the next meal!

Alyosha was waiting for me with a ready-made dinner. Of course, he conscientiously failed the exam, which was, however, not surprising after last night, but his face shone with quiet joy. We ate and. Drank tea, and then sat side by side for a long time and he sang his songs to me, and we again talked about everything in the world.
